⠀⠀⠀⠀”A friend stands up for a friend,” goes the cliché.
⠀⠀⠀⠀One who isn’t won’t. Your one made sure I’d not
⠀⠀⠀⠀respect you, trust you, believe any word you say.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀Like a key suspect being questioned, who forgot
⠀⠀⠀⠀his own story, he hopes who’s fooled’ll buy any lie.
⠀⠀⠀⠀One who isn’t won’t. Your one made sure I’d not.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀One who chooses not to live will die
⠀⠀⠀⠀three times over. By his own word he creates
⠀⠀⠀⠀his own story. He hopes who’s fooled’ll buy any lie.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀Eventually false friendship deteriorates.
⠀⠀⠀⠀I’m sorry if I hurt you. I repent
⠀⠀⠀⠀three times over. By his own word he creates
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀his own enemies. He failed to represent
⠀⠀⠀⠀how true a friend you are. I can’t help, but
⠀⠀⠀⠀I’m sorry. If I hurt you, I repent.
⠀⠀⠀⠀
⠀⠀⠀⠀You should’nt’ve been trashed no matter what.
⠀⠀⠀⠀”A friend stands up for a friend,” goes the cliché.
⠀⠀⠀⠀How true a friend you are! I can’t help but
⠀⠀⠀⠀respect you, trust you, believe any word you say.
